crossovert (8803) - Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2011
UPDATED: APR 7, 2014 473ml can. The pour is a nice hazy amber with a foamy white head that leaves a good amount of lacing. Sure, not the prettiest brew but good enough that the Brewers shouldn’t be ashamed of it leaving the can. The smell is awesome when you pour it out, better than sniffing it form the can. It has a great deal of tropical mango and cane sugar. Very resiny. Kind of one-dimensional but in a way that I love. The flavor is really nice. It has a mellow front end with sugar and melon being the main flavors. There is a bit of pale graininess in the beginning that is that sweet biscuity type which is awesome. The finish is bitter with some nice pine. It is pretty balanced with sweetness all the way through and a nice bitterness at the end. It prob could have had a pinch more bitterness to make it absolutely perfect. Glad I got to try this, I am often let down by hype, but this one is delicious and worth tracking down.

Emeister84 (1443) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 19, 2015
The initial swig from the can is very balanced, though definitely hop forward, and very clean. Once in a glass the aromas are very opened up. Tropical fruit, pineapple, citrusy. A slightly hazy appearance, light orange with a decently lasting white head. Dry, bitter, very clean. Medium bodied, highly drinkable.

rollingwood (89) - Maryland, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Pleasing balance of hops and malt from the minute you crack the can to the last sip (when the beer has warmed somewhat, obviously). Not only is this beer exceptional, but it comes in tallboys as well! Very thoughtful. And as to the ratings that dinged HT on the ’hype,’ forget the hype. Rate the beer!

furthur (354) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Can, cloudy yellow beer, big white head, good lace. Aroma lychee, orange, mint and spring spruce. Taste is light malt, spruce resin, faint citrus, and citrus rind. I wish the taste delivered what the aroma promises. Still, this is juicy, yet light and drinkable, especially for 120ibu. Palate light, carbonation bright.

Bottle share (or can share). Beautiful aroma, heady indeed. Nice robust, slick body, hoppy notes dominate without distracting. Clean finish.

Poured from the can. Thin white head, glorious golden, lupulin hazy color. Tropical, citrus bomb on the nose. Hop dankness. Hints of sweet tropical fruit and notes of pine across the palate. Hides it’s alcohol well. Overall a bomb double IPA

GrinchY2K (10) - Maryland, USA - MAY 15, 2015
In a can. 1 week old. Aroma iis pretty complex and very hoppy- apricot, pineapple, grapefruit, and pine. Taste is also very fruity and hoppy, medium bodied, with a lasting firm bitter finish. enjoyed this alot.

kokos666 (20) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 10, 2015
Ok this beer is awsome it has everything that you need from strong ipa. Hoppy aroma, fruity taste, good "in your face" bitternes and well hidden alco. In the other hand in Poland we have some dipa’s that are equal and 4 times cheaper than this.

SetauketBrewer (65) - New York, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Piney and resonous with hints of fruit lying underneath. A bit cloudy I’m the pour with a nice white head. Flavor full of hops but not bitter which is good for someone who isn’t the biggest ipa fan. Almost sweet on the back. Great representation of the style. Could be beginning of my conversion to ipas
